Here are some new photos the park sent me today. We are very much looking forward to our visit this summer! We will continue to bring you construction photos and the park sends them to us, and we also hope to shoot some video during our trip later this year!

Please be sure to also check out the progress here:

When I was there a couple months ago, there was a huge spot this couldn't go. I'm guessing it is going over where G'Sau (Or however it's spelled) enterance is. I saw dirt and some construction, but no structure.

But this coaster is going to be awesome!

Is this ride going to be a clone of Troy?

^^ It's an original ride. Here is an overview of Der Mammut's blueprints:

Note the underground tunnel near the finish of the ride.


Here is a 3D rendering of Troy: (No underground tunnel. and it is more twisted.

http://rcdb.com/ig3589.htm?picture=2

As you can see, Mammut turns to the right at the bottom of it's first drop, and Troy turns to the left. Plus, look at the rcdb info:

Mammut:

Length: 2,821' 6"
Height: 98' 5"
Speed: 55.9 mph

Troy:

Length: 3,412'
Height: 110'
Speed: 56 mph

I'm not trying to be mean, I just felt like giving some extra proof.

It's spelled G'sengte Sau, in case you were still wondering.

I am glad, a new Wooden in Europe !!! :br
But I hope in the futur, I could come to the USA and ride a lot of wooden, like El Toro, son of Beast, Troy, The voyage ...

That big turn after the first drop reminds me a lot of the turn after the first drop on Boardwalk Bullet.

The rest of the ride bears no resemblance, though.

Too bad Bullet doesn't have a first drop like that one... it looks sweeeeeeeet.
